you enjoy the great opening act? thank you so much for joining us tonight for san francisco's asian pacific heritage celebration. yes. and that is giving u.s. side of things to come, but i want to tell you what about the opening performance that you saw. it was proudly presented by the american center for the philippine arts, and it means a "from the village of." it is alive journey of the man struggling with the responsibility. the untapped and dynamism of the folk dance. it was created by the choreographer and performed by san francisco dance artists jonathan mercado, henry lau, maritoni madrano and kimberly requesto. give them an opening applause for that act. [applause] as for this group here, we request that you stand for the singing of the national anthem. >> ♪ oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light what so proudly we hail at the twilight's last gleaming ♪ ♪ who's broad stripes and bright stars through theh perilous fight o'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming? ♪ ♪ and the rockets' red glare the bombs bursting in air gave proof through the ni
, it is something that we have talked about. it is important for us to understand what the cbos are doing. it is important for them to have specific training for their individuals. they should also have some guidelines and some criteria to evaluate their successes, on a quarterly and yearly basis. >> thank you. last question. what are the types of job opportunities that are available for at risk youth? what are the funding opportunities? >> there are not many job opportunities right now. with the way that funding is currently, it is only being reduced. what we try to do is think creative. we try to create an internship programs, where we try to confuse -- infuse youth. we utilize a lot of non-western ways of trying to have youth identified. we infuse political education so they can make a good choice. there are other programs like oasis. there are not many opportunities, not everybody could work -- all the work permits required. it also requires a social security number. alternative pathways are a good way to go, such as those internship opportunities. use these venues as an opportunity t
to afghanistan's future. >> that designation paves the way for the u.s. and afghanistan to maintain defense long aft u.s. troop withdrawal. secretary clinton is on her way to tokyo. in japan, she'll ask international donors to pledge their support to afghanistan. joining me on the phone from kabul is john wendell, a photographer and time magazine correspondent. how significant is this announcement? >> caller: hi. thanks for having me. i think secretary clinton's use of the word symbol is the keyword here. the enduring partnership was signed on may 2nd between the u.s. and afghanistan. the major non-nato ally announcement was part of that. the announcement, i think, is not so significant when it comes to the day-to-day of the war. what i think it is doing is helping lay the fears o afghanistan's elite that will be abandoned ahead of the 2014 u.s. withdrawal of nato forces and part of an effort to push the taliban back. i think the main reason for the announcement was so the u.s. can point to a concrete move showing its commitment ahead of the tokyo conference you mentioned tomorrow. as part of an
on the building. yes, the architecture is slightly better than the previous iteration that was presented to us and the massing of the building is slightly smaller than the previous iteration, but this project does not substantially -- but this project is not substantially different or approved of the project two years ago. additionally, there are no benefits to this project, no benefits that make this project necessary or desirable. to hear the same argument for every housing to the lead based on your argument, i cannot support this project. i cannot support a continuing the project because the project sponsor does not seem to me interested in working with the community. i don't know why that is. maybe that has to be decided other places. as planning commissioners, looking at the threshold of conditional use, looking at the fact there are exceptions to the bulk limitations and the height and bulk district, a variance from the rear yard, all of the exceptions, this is not a code complying product to begin with. i think we are exercising our discretion. president fong: commissioner sugaya? commi

to be part of the solution, if we used a methodology of the budget analyst, and while we would be opposed to it, we would reluctantly agreed for our analysis to and attrition about reduction. diaz's suited friends that would go along with that also. >> - my associate and friends would go along with that also. supervisor chu: the budget analyst has recommended 1.1 million worth of attrition savings and the french that goes along with it. the department is indicating using the methodology and knowing the information you have in the apartment, that you think that number is more like 531,000. its songs like you are reluctantly agreeing? to g-- it sounds like you were reluctantly agreeing? >> we receive the revised budget calculations last night. we think there are some things that are left out. it does not account for when they talked about last week, the retirement in any kind of savings. the talk about the cost of the new recruits and the academies. so savings and over time as they bring on more permanent staff. there will be a differential that is not in these numbers that is in retirement
vehicles, uav's. pilotless aircraft used mostly by the u.s. military for surveillance, reconnaissance, and killing, as in yemen recently. he here at home, law enforcement agencies, local police, are eager to utilize drones for civil surveillance. some already do. 146 commercial drones are now accessible for civil law enforcement nationwide. the number is expected to skyrocket. the the u.s. senate armed services committee called for allowing these drones to operate, quote unquote, freely and routinely in u.s. airspace. such authorization has rattled some members of congress. notably republican senator rand paul. he's introduced an act to prohibit the i don't say of drones by u.s. civilian government unless authorized by a warrant. that would put parameters on such usage. >> what i would say is that drones could be used if you have a proper warrant but that means you go through a judge, a judge has to say there's probable cause of a crime, but i don't want dreams crisscrossing our city and country snooping on americans. that's a surveillance state that i'm very concerned about and that'

that a great deal of us waste hundreds of millions of dollars of our charitable dollars intended to help veterans is being squandered and wasted by opportunists and individuals and companies that seek -- see it as a profit-making opportunity. >> reporter: daniel borochoff runs a charity watchdog group out of this office in chicago. he grades charities on just how much good and bad they do with your donations. veterans and military charities are some of the worst, he says. and that includes the disabled veterans national foundation, which he gives an f. because hardly any of the donations make it to the people the group is fund-raising for. so back to that $56 million the group has raised. if it hasn't gone to direct contributions to veterans, where exactly did it go? >> as far as we can tell, up to the tenth floor of this manhattan office building to a company called quadriga arts, a company that specializes in fund-raising. and as far as we know, they know a lot about fund-raising for itself. it is a private company which according to its website raises money for more than 500 charities

it is today. it's still in use. the stables out there. they are meant so the public would have the opportunity previously only available to the elite, as it so often the case, as is with golf. like lincoln park built by the wpa. think of the experiences that people have had and the history which is embodied in them. there is daves tennis stadium. here it is, this was a tournament for inner-city youth. archery at golden gate park. our play grounds. here it is in use today. this is bernal heights park. you can still see the gutters they put in there. this is buena vista parks. this is quezar park. this is mount davidson. look out for the rock. this is on telegraph park. this is stern grove. this is a little known park above candle stick. here's my friend jake, standing by a wall. this was rosy play ground. they turned it into a park and it was also restored by wpa. i believe they torn down the house, which was unforgivable and the zoo is wpa. and here's the murals inside the mother's building. the marina sea walls and great aquatic park. the palace of fine arts. we wouldn't have and a little fur

understanding is that it is not illegal to be a monopoly. it is just a legal to use your monopoly power in a certain way. that is ancient history. there is an antitrust case involving apple and sun book publishers right now. there is a google anti traced -- antitrust case. these are -- it is not the sheer size of these companies. sometimes it tracks the attention of the government as the way they interact with the economy, the way they interact with privacy, the way they interact with commerce. in the case of that will, they are very big in a dollars since. they are big on the impact they have on everyone's lives. obviously, that is going to attract the attention of regulators and enforcement agencies in the city. i will say that i have lived in washington for nearly 40 years and i spent 20 years as a washington correspondent and editor in our washington bureau. before turning to technology, my observation is that the government in general was and still is behind in its actual integration and use of tied biology on a day-to-day basis. i will give you an example. the government is the la
and a higher percentage of people that have cars. if we look at land uses on broadway, we see residential uses, a bunch of affordable housing projects. there is also an elementary school and a preschool. a lot of neighborhood serving retail in particular on the ground floor, and a lot of visitors and tourist attractions. chinatown is a major tourist destination for the city and the region. on cesar chavez, there's a large housing project just north of the street. there is an elementary school and a lot of industrial uses. the area just south was retained as our core pdr district. both of the streets are wide materials with pretty fast- moving traffic. broadway is a really important east/west connection, and we see cars moving pretty fast as they enter and exit the tunnel. as he is also a pretty flat street compared to neighborhoods around it, and that could be in terms of thinking about how the street is used. if we look at job as -- cesar chavez, it is also a wide arterial and a really important development that we will see. it is also a direct connection between two freeways, and it is also
enforcement here in california is in effect a war on crumbs instead of the often used phrase on drugs. how do you respond to his remarks? >> well, i think the first thing that we have to recognize is that the majority of people who are caught up in the criminal justice system and who are prosecuted for this type of offense for possession offenses and to some degree possession for sale offenses, the vast majority are indigent people and the vast majority of those indigent people are people of color. so what you have are two systems in place. you have a system where privileged white middle class people basically use drugs, college campuses, frat parties, not clubs, they use drug with impunity, they don't have to worry about being caught. then you have a system that comes down like a ton of bricks on indigent poor people and that's one of the reasons why i think this type of reform is a positive first step because if you aren't going to make drug possession illegal, at least make it a misdemeanor and not a felony. at least don't stigmatize and label an entire population of people as felons and p

significant impact on this country, and left us a large legacy. i can just sort of recite some of the things that he did. but even that wouldn't even touch in any way the fullness and the breadth of his impact on late 19th century america. again, most of us know he served five terms in congress. he served in the south carolina senate. he served in the south carolina house. and, of course, he was the collector of customs for the port of buford. but beyond those things, he provides us with sort of an understanding and a way of reinterpreting reconstruction, a way of reinterpreting the civil rights movement. now -- so he sort of brings together those two fields. you heard dr. powers allude to his being sort of the precursor to the second reconstruction because of what he did in the 19th century. well, let me start this way by talking about reconstruction and robert smalls' a role in it. you'll see how these two things come together in terms of how he has influenced american historiography. in 1909, w.e.b. dubois spoke before the american historical association in new york city. he did a present
have new reports of the deaths related to the heat wave. what can you tell us. >> hi, harris. at least two dozen people have died as a result of the scorching heat wave. 10 people died in the state of the illinois. and four people in the city of chicago and nine people died in the state of maryland it is hot, it is dangerously hot. here in washington dc, regan international airport hit 105 degrees today. and first time it was that hot since 1930. that was an all-time record high of 60 degrees. as for the palace situation in the midatlantic states. just under 9,000 people are still without power and air conditioning more than one week after the powerful thunderstorms came through . most are in the baltimore maryland area hit 102 degrees today. harris? >> molly, for some people it is it a full-time effort to cool off in the coling centers. how are people coping . >> as best they can. it is hot in the shade today. it hit 114 in the shade and we had the thermometer by us all day. it is cooling down and 99 and half degrees at 7 o'clock in thining and it is all relative when it is that hot.
and sin no more. and if you do, you'll be back here to see us. and so, i think that once again, i go back to the fact that under the current system, because we have so many of those individuals who were once incarcerated at the state level, being pushed down to the counties, there's no room at the end in terms of the county jails. so misdemeanors aren't going to be sentenced to county jail but will be sentenced in community service or whatever. and for those individuals who do need some measure of control and supervision to deal about -- deal with their conviction problems, it's not going to happen at the misdemeanor level. >> let me go to a couple of the questions from the audience. i've shared them with our district attorney. george, two questions there, one related to whether or not drug possession should be treated differently for adults than from juveniles. and then a question about back on track, whether or not that program would be positively or adversely affected by senator leno's proposal. >> yes, let me start with the first question concerning juveniles. i think juveniles defini
of the south carolina legislature, he pushes for a naval station at port royal. when he becomes a u.s. congressman, he puts petitions before the u.s. congress for the establishment of a naval station at port royal. and in the 1880s, the united states navy will establish on parris island the port royal naval station. this naval station is eventually moved to charleston, but it becomes now the home of the marine corps recruit depot where i work. and just to put a quick plug in for our museum, please come down and visit us, and also come and visit penn center out on the sea islands as well where you can follow more of the story of robert smalls. >> i would say that one of the things that robert smalls didn't complete was indeed, even though for a short period he did have this power base, this political power base, he wasn't able to maintain it. again, not through any fault of his own, but because of the forces of the democratic party and the ku klux klan and the democratic rifle clubs. and he essentially was trying to do what other american ethnic groups had done in this country in terms

, not that is only required by law. so you can't make the findings and i would ask you to deny the conditional use and not make the findings. president fong: thank you. joyce lewis. we have to keep the door clear. i think most of you guys have kind of spoken already. kathleen courtney, frank clamath, michael finnick, i think you may have spoke already, willie adams. >> i'm joyce lewis. first of all, i would like to say that i have lived in the neighborhood for over 40-plus years and even as a child, myself and my siblings were sent to that church for sunday school. so i do have a long history with the church itself. i also wanted to note that the neighbors and the neighborhood association had tried to work with the developer and the respond -- sponsor for many years as we are anxious to have this abandoned building dealt with. it's a aye sore and the homeless and all of that other stuff that has been going on. but 20 years ago, it was really a beautiful church as one person had noted how it was so like a piece of art and so that it was actually an asset to the neighborhood. it brought space to the
? okay. so smalls -- smalls, then, gives us an understanding then of how the civil rights movement that is in the goals of the movement extended back past 1954. now we historians, we argue a back and forth over this issue of when did the civil rights movement begin. and of course those of us who believe that the civil rights movement is a long movement. i had one colleague say to me that the civil rights movement started when the first slave got off the boat. but then most people, though, will say it started in 1954 with the brown decision and the montgomery bus boycott. well, the long civil rights movement, though, actually does go back to people like robert smalls who indeed were trying to pass and propose legislation that would give african-americans equal opportunity to work, equal opportunity and public accommodations as you have heard. equal access to the ballot, and basically, dignity. and smalls' own life sort of sets the tone for that in that he was a fighter. he challenged discrimination every opportunity and every chance that he got. now some of you, as you heard helen s
